Tragedy Brings Skiing Party to an End Ward, Colo., Dec. 6 —(UP)-- A gay collegiate skiing party which turned into fro/en teror high in the white-capped Rockies was over today with one girl dead and two men injured seriously. The body of Hazel Jeanetle Martin, 22, New Providence, la., lay frozen on wind-whipped, deserted and treacherous Isabel glacier. The youths. David Waddington. '22, Westcliffe, Colo., and De Forrest W. Meehleib. 20, Peoria, 111., were rushed by ambulance to Boulder, Colo., for emergency hospital treatment. The three University of Colorado students had been missing since Tuesday. Weary rescuers, aided by dogs flown from the air rescue base at Fort Robinson, Neb., found them just before dusk yesterday. Searchers who stumbled' into Miller's store early today with the two survivors said the skiiers must have been caught in either a landslide or a snowslide. Waddington was faintly conscious' and Mehleib was unconscious. Both youths were suffering from multiple broken bones and exposure. The three students started out last week-end on a 12-student skiing expedtion. Tuesday morning they left the others to brave the dangerous trip to Navajo Peak. The rescuers trudged foot-by-foot through the wind-ridden mountains. Meehleib was found near Miss Martin's body. Waddington was rescued two miles away. It was believed that he—the least injured—was seeking aid when he collapsed from shock and exhaustion. He apparently walked the two miles tnrough the snow with a broken arm and a shattered shoulder-bone. It was not determined immedi-. ately whether Miss Martin died of injuries or exposure. She served in the WAVES during the war and was attending Colorado University on the GI Bill of Rights. The 'exhausted rescue parties DOROTHY DlX Babies-Marriage Wreckers A wit has said that the almost inevitable consequence of marriage is a baby. That may have been a wisecrack once, but it is a $84 problem now that Junior has become a home wrecker who puts Casanova into Hie amateur class. Of course, the little moon - faced creatuie, innocently sucking his thumb in his bassinet, isn't a criminal, who, with malice aforethought alienates his parents and starts teeth, and Grandma wants to step out herself of evenings instead of singing little Sweetums to sleep, and when most mothers are forced to be their own baby - sitters.

I must have gotten a million tear '. The reason so many husbands re soaked missives from wives telling how happy their marriages were until the first baby came.

But the arrival of the Little Stranger their husbands began roaming and they had never been the same since. And thousands of other wives, who are nothing but young girls themselves, avid for the pleasures that belong to their time of life, sob out sad stories about how they vert to the wild after the first baby comes is because their wives virtually push them out of the house so they can be free to do their baby - worshipping in peace.

At first the child, daughter of a maquisard killed fighting the German occupation forces, could not understand. The house mother explained how the widow of. the American president had adopted her and would send her packages every month. The child's eyes filled with tears. "Mama will, be so happy," she murmured. "She is a good woman, is Madame Roosevelt. Papa used to talk about her at home when the Boches were here." Christiane is one of the children who live in a requisitioned manor house of the Association Nationale des Families de Fusilles et Massacres (Association of Families of the Shot and Massacred). Under the plan of adoption of the Friends of Widows and Orphans of French Resistance in New York, she will receive two packages of food and clothing each month from her new Club, and civic ganizations. and patriotic or The meeting directed Razorback Booster President Chism Reed of Paris to appoint a committee to sponsor the proposals before the 1947 legislature.

The young man was both handsome and nervy. He told her she was the prettiest girl he had ever seen. "From now on, it's you and me—together," he said. Rose is convinced that Fate arrangeu the whole thing and can't wait to tell her sister, Sidney, about it. But when she gels home, Sidney seems so hard and derisive that Rose finds she can't share her secret. The year is 1910. From the kitchen door Miss Amy called, "Oh, Beauregard" Hearing the sound of running feet in the twilit yard, she added: "Do not forget to scrub your hands. Fingernails, too." Then she carried the coffee - pot into the dining room where the table was laid with a clean cloth and the oil lamp in the middle. Sitting down,-she tinkled the little bell at her plate. Supper was ready. Rose entered from the kitchen creak on its hinges and tilted her head alertly. "Jeff?" ••Yes, Mamma." "It's Jeff!" Miss Amy announc ed, in radiant recognition ot the ef ficiency of prayer. Jeff came directly into the dm ing room and set down the cum FIRST CHRISTIAN 210 N. Main St. Wm. P.

Miss Amy gave a last glance all around. "Yes, dear." Rose, she was thinking, was the best, the most satisfactory daughter in the world. The major came in from the parlor. Without his hat, with his tunic undone and paunch protruding, he looked rather like a squat Buddha, bald and sallow. He shook out his napkin, his eyes making an appraisal of the food. Lamb stew with carrots and noodles? "Hmm," said the Major and nodded. Hannah, the long - legged 12 year old appeared and slipped into her chair; then Sidney raced clown the stairs, a bunch of artificial camel lias pinned to shirtwasist, bracelets clanking on her arm. Lastly came Beau, like a cub bear lumbering into his place between Rose and Miss Amy. Beau was 10, brown haired, blunt nosed, exuberant- hungry. With everybody seated, the Majo mumbled a blessing. Miss Am; kept her eyes closed,, even after th amen.

He kissed Miss Amy, erked Hannah's braids, pounded eauregard on the back and patted is father's shoulder, an attention eceived by the Major with amiable ass duckings. "Hi, gals?"
